Shah Rukh Khan is one of the most popular and favorite Bollywood celebrities across the world. He is one of the top actors of Hindi film industry. King Khan topped the Forbes list as the highest-paid Bollywood actor in 2013 with an estimated net worth of Rs 220.5 crore, for which his name is recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Whatever Lata Mangeshkar achieved during her illustrious career, she also entered the Guinness Book of World Records. The 1974 edition of The Guinness Book of Records listed Bharat Ratna Lata ji as the most recorded artist. However, singer and composer Mohammad Rafi had opposed the claim. The list of Lata ji’s names continued in the book, but Mohammed Rafi’s claim was also mentioned. This entry was later removed in 1991.
Following in the footsteps of Shah Rukh Khan, Katrina Kaif was named the highest-paid actress in Bollywood in the Guinness Book of World Records in 2013 with an estimated earnings of Rs 63.75 crore. Katrina, who has been a part of some big blockbusters in Bollywood, is one of the top actresses in the film industry today.
Amitabh Bachchan is often called the Institution of Acting in Bollywood. Apart from acting, the megastar is also known for his voice. Big B reportedly holds the record of singing ‘Hanuman Chalisa’ with 19 famous singers. These included Kailash Kher, Prasoon Joshi, Shaan, Shankar Mahadevan, Sonu Nigam, Sukhwinder Singh, Suresh Wadkar, Udit Narayan and others. The song was composed by Shekhar Ravjiani.
Like father, like son. Yes, the name of Abhishek Bachchan is also recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records. However, like Big B, it is not in singing, but for public appearances in many cities in 12 hours. Junior Bachchan had made this record when he was busy promoting the film ‘Delhi 6’. Earlier this record was held by Daniel Brohl and Jorgen Vogel.
